How to Cope in the Dreaded Changing Rooms

I wrote about my issue with changing rooms in stores some weeks ago, and I was pleased to find that many other women struggled with trying on clothes in dreaded changing rooms. The discovery wasn’t surprising to me at all. I knew I wasn’t the only one avoiding store changing rooms. If you Google up “Dreaded Changing Rooms”, you will find many articles on this issue. Which is why I am writing this post on how to cope in the Dreaded Changing Rooms, if you find yourself there.

Go for the inner changing rooms

My main issue with the changing rooms is my fear that someone would stumble in mistakenly or deliberately. The curtains also do not provide enough privacy. I find that there are usually little gaps at each side which is why I like to go for the inner changing rooms for a bit more privacy and security.

 

Be realistic

My first tip when it comes to surviving the changing room is to be realistic. Select clothing that would suit your body shape and make sure they come in the right size. There is no point for you to pick a size 12 dress if you are a size 8. The dress would never look good on you. Also, the fact that the skirt looks amazing on the shop assistant does not mean it would look good on you. Go for styles that would complement your figure.

Being realistic in the changing room is a way to make the process a lot easier.

 

Walk around in the pieces

Before you decide on whether you are buying the pieces, make sure you sit down and walk around in it. That way you would get an idea of how the clothing would look and feel on a regular day for you. Also, you sitting down is a way for you to take your time and have a good look before you decide on whether to buy or not. What looks good standing up may look horrible when you sit down. That dress that looks lovely when standing up may look tight and off when you sit down.

The last thing you need is to rush when trying on clothes. You are in the changing room already, you may as well take your time.

Give yourself a 360

I know many of us struggle with the mirrors in the changing rooms. It could be due to the lightning and the type of mirrors used but you need to give yourself a 360 when trying on clothes. Using the mirrors would help you see the whole outfit from all angles so you get no nasty surprise when you are out and about in your new piece.

 

These tips do work for me when I have to deal with the dreaded changing rooms. I like to avoid changing rooms as much as I can which is why I go for online shopping, but when I have to go into the shops, these tips come in handy.

How do you cope in changing rooms? Do you have any tips that work for you? Please share them in the comments section below.

Summer is here and it is now time to think of summer shopping, but the weather feels and looks like autumn!

Last summer was an exception. We were spoilt rotten, but back to reality now. The fact still remains  that this is summer, so if you are in need of some summer shopping finds to buy, you may like this post.

Shirt dress are great for adding a bit of style to your summer wardrobe. I love having a couple of them in my wardrobe for all seasons because they can be styled differently to suit every season.  I think they are really cute outfit ideas for girls as well.

We are also loving the pink sparkly trainers. They are super pretty and my daughter is so in love with the sparkly pink. It suits the blue shirt dress really well and many pieces in her wardrobe. I really like the shiny black laces, it is pretty and the zip behind makes it so easy to put on.
